Exat?ii}iations of Water, Milk, Blood, Urine, Sputum, 
Pus, Food Products, Beverages, Drugs, Minerals, 
Coloring Matters, etc., for diagnostic, prophylactic, 
or other scientific purposes. 

All analyses at these Laboratories are so conducted 
as to assure the best service attainable on the basis of the 
latest scientific developments. The laboratories are 
amply supplied with a perfect quality of reagent materials, 
and with the most efficient constructions of modern 
apparatus and instruments. The probable cost for some 
of tlte most frequently needed researches is approximately 
indicated below : 

Sptitum, for tuberculosis bacilli, . . . $3.00 

Urine, for tuberculosis bacilli, . . . 3.00 

Milk, for tuberculosis bacilli, . . .3.00 

Urine, qualitative, for one constituent, . 1.50 
Urine, qualitative, for each additional constituent, 1.00 

Urine, quantitative, for each constituent, . 3.00 

Urine, sediment, microscopical, 1.50 

Blood, for ratio of white to red corpuscles, . 2.00 

Blood, for WidaPs typhoid reaction, . . 2.00

MERCK & CO., NEW YORK 



This facsimile of the first edition of 
The Merck Manual, published as Merck's 
1 899 Manual, has been produced in celebra- 
tion of the 100th anniversary of this not-for- 
profit publication. The Merck Manual has 
been continuously published longer than any 
other general textbook of medicine in the 
English language. 

We hope that you enjoy revisiting 
medical history through this facsimile edi- 
tion. It illustrates the enormous advances in 
medical knowledge and practice that have 
taken place over the past 100 years.

TV /T ERCK'S MANUAL is designed to meet a need which every 
general practitioner has often experienced. Memory is 
treacherous. It is particularly so with those who have much 
to do and more to think of. When the best remedy is wanted, 
to meet indications in cases that are a little out of the usual 
run, it is difficult, and sometimes impossible, to recall the whole 
array of available remedies so as to pick out the best. Strange 
to say, too, it is the most thoroughly informed man that is 
likely to suffer to the greatest extent in this way ; because of 
the very fact that his mind is overburdened. But a mere re- 
minder is all he needs, to make him at once master of the 
situation and enable him to prescribe exactly what his judgment 
tells him is needed for the occasion. 

In MERCK'S MANUAL the physician will find a complete 
Ready-Reference Book covering the entire eligible Materia 
Medica. A glance over it just before or just after seeing a patient 
will refresh his memory in a way that will facilitate his coming 
to a decision. In this book, small as it is, he will find the 
essential data found in the ponderous Dispensatories, together 
with the facts of newest record, which can appear only in future 
editions of those works. 

Part I affords at a glance a descriptive survey, in one alpha- 
betic series, of the entire Materia Medica to-day in general use 
by the American profession. Part 11 contains a summary of 
Therapeutic Indications for the employment of remedies, 
arranged according to the Pathologic Conditions to be combated. 
Part III presents a Classification of Medicaments in accordance 
with their Physiologic Actions. 

The publishers may be allowed to state that they have 
labored long and earnestly, so to shape this little volume that it 
shall prove a firm and faithful help to the practitioner in his 
daily round of duty. They now send it forth in the confident 
hope that, the more it is put to the test of actual use, the more 
it will grow in the esteem of its possessor. 



CONTENTS 



Pages Part First.— THE MATERIA MEDICA, as in actual 

9 to 82. use to-day by American Physicians. (Alpha- 

betically arranged.) 

This part embraces all those Simple Medicinal Substances 
(that is, drugs and chemicals) which are in current and 
well-established use in the medical practice of this country; 
or which, if too recently introduced to be as yet in general 
use, are vouched for by eminent authorities in medical 
science ; — also, the medicinally employed Pharmaceutic Pre- 
parations recognized by the United States Pharmacopceia. 

(Added thereto, for the convenience of those practitioners who 
prescribe them, are Medicamentous Mixtures advertised only to 
the Profession, but whose composition or mode of manufacture 
has not been made known with sufBcient completeness or exactness 
to satisfy all members of the Profession. In the selection the pub- 
lishers have been guided solely by the recognition accorded the var- 
ious preparations by the Profession, according to the best informa- 
tion obtained.) 

There has also been included, under the title of "Foods 
and Dietetic Preparations," a list of such preparations as are 
frequently prescribed for infants' diet, or for the sick or con- 
valescent. 

Omitted from the Materia Medica chapter are: Medica- 
ments that have become obsolete, or that are too rarely used 
to be of general interest; and such new remedies as are not yet 
safely accredited on reliable authority; also those galenic 
preparations (syrups, extracts, pills, essences, elixirs, wines, 
emulsions, etc. ) which are not standardized according to the 
U. S. Pharmacopoeia ; likewise all articles that are put up 
and advertised for self-medication by the lay public. 

Separate Titles in the alphabetic series are accorded, 
as a rule, to the botanical drugs and other pharmaceutical 

6 



mother-substances, to proximate principles (alkaloids, glucos- 
ides, organic acids, etc.), and to chemical compounds (salts, 
"synthetics," etc.); while the official galenic preparations, 
solutions and dilutions, derived from them, are mostly men- 
tioned under the titles of their respective mother-substances. 
(Thus, for instance, " Dover's Powder" will be found under 
" Opium," while "Morphine" is described under its own 
title. ) 

(Smaller type has been employed — in order to economize space — 
for botanic drugs, griims, and some others of the older drugs and 
preparations which are so long and veil known that but little 
reference will need be made to them.) 

(Those substances of the Materia Medica which can be had of the 
Merck brand are — for the convenience of prescribers — so desig^n&ted). 



Pages Part Second.— THERAPEUTIC INDICATIONS for 

83 to 1 84. the use of the Materia Medica and other agents. 

(Arranged alphabetically under the titles of the 
various Pathologic Conditions.) 

This part summarizes in brief form, the principal means 
of treatment for each form of disease, as reported to be 
in good use with practitioners at the present time. The 
statements hereon are drawn from the standard works of the 
leading modern writers on Therapeutics, and supplemented — 
in the case of definite chemicals of more recent introduction 
— by the reports of reputable clinical investigators. 



Pages Part Third.— CLASSIFICATION OF MEDICA- 

1 85 to 1 92. MENTS according to their Physiologic Actions. 

(Arranged alphabetically under the titles of the 

Actions.) 

This part recapitulates, tor ready survey, such state- 
ments as are already given in " Part I," as to the modes of 
action of the various medicaments.

W /Tien in immediate need 

of Drugs or Chemicals not at hand, any 
pharmacist is in a position to use our EMERGENCY 
DEPARTMENT, which is in operation every day in 
the year, Sundays and Holidays included, until ,9 p. m. 
— Hurry orders reaching us after regular business 
hours will receive prompt attention, — provided : 

I — that they come by Wire; 

2 — that they call for Merck's chemicals or drugs 
(no other brands being in stock with us) ; 

^ — and that the quantity and nature of the goods 
admit of their being sent through the Mails. 

As it is impossible for us to ascertain in each 
instance the identity of a Physician who might wish 
to make use of this department, we must insist (for 
the proper protection of the Profession against the un- 
authorized purchase of poisons, etc.; as well as in due 
recognition, by us, of the established usage in the 
traific with medicines and drugs) that every such order 
be transmitted through an established Pharmacist ; and 
pharmacists, when telegraphing orders to us, should 
always mention their jobber to whom the article is to 
be charged. 

We trust that this Department will prove of value 
in cases of emergency and immediate need.

GeiKral Scope of Contents. 

JN. B. — This "General Scope" is not to be upderstood to state certain standing divisions or 
chapter heads for the contents of the journal ; but rather to denote the 
"^ character of the various classes of matter to be treated of.] 

«• ORIGINAL RESEARCH "—comprising Papers, Lectures, or Re- 
ports by reputable investigators on the results of experiments 
and collective trials, regarding the physiological actions and 
curative properties of Drugs, and the manner of their 
therapeutic Employment. 

••ADVANCE IN MATERIA MEDICA "—being Condensed Reports, 
freshly compiled each month, on the latest advances in 
Medicinal Agents and in Methods of applying them — 
embracing the discoveries of New Remedies, and of New 
Uses of the older ones.

usefulness to the general practitioner — containing in each 
number a series of selected Formulas ; and. occasionally, 
criticisms on Prescription Errors; information and sugges- 
tions on Incompatibilities and other Prescription Difficulties; 
what should be prescribed in Solid and what in Liquid form; 
the Regulation of General Dosage, in such various forms as: 
gargles, eye-washes, urethral injections, vaginal injections, 
medicated baths ; as well as of Dosage by Age in enemas, 
suppositories, hypodermics, etc.

everything ; " but it aims to do One Thing thoroughly ^ 
— to offer the practitioner new and valuable inform- 
ation on the Materia Medica and its recent develop- 
, ments. 

''MERCK'S ARCH I VES " tvill lay before the practi- 
tioner the results of the Thought and Work of 
I others on Drugs and their Uses^ in such form as to 
be most directly serviceable to him. 

The Condensed Reports on ^'Advance in Materia Medica'' 
will give enough of the theoretical reasoning and 
clinical experience of the original authors, to make 
clear the value of their conclusions. 

The Papers, -etc., of " Original Research " will be only 

such as combine relative brevity with practical use- 

\ fulness. At the same time they will be of such high 

character as to invite the attention of him also who 

reads from purely scientific interest. 

The Selections from the world' s medical Periodic Liter- 
ature will be taken solely with a view to their sug- 
gestive value to the physician regardi7ig remedial 
agents and their applications. 

The sig7iifica?ice of the other matters in ^'■MERCK' S 
ARCHIVES" is evident from their description in 
the preceding synopsis of contents; while their 
presentation will likewise be in full accord 7vith 
the principles indicated above : — Practical Useful- 
ness ; Scientific Exactness j Ethical Dignity ; Pal- 
atable and Readily Digestible Eorm.
